I stumbled on this show based 2 monsters setlists. The i find it's the Keith and Donna's last gig. Some say awesome show others say "auto pilot" or "let's get this over with"

Before I dabble, anyone have thoughts on this?

Lobster, you should absolutely get this show. There's plenty of highlights here including one of the best Lazy/Supplication that I've heard. On top of that, the sound is great and of course there's the historical perspective of being the last Keith & Donna show.

Unless there are a few other versions out there, I got this show some time ago and I was not impressed by the sound. I'm listening to LL > Supplication right now because it's one of my favorites and I really think the only good versions out there are probably the first 10 they ever sang. After than they got too fast and w.r.t specifically Supplication, they would play the song so fast Bobby couldn't get through the lyrics on time. The supplication jamming though is why I listen to this sequence, along with the end of Supplication.

Hmm...I gave this show 2 stars out of 5 on my iTunes. It is a killer set list though, especially the second half.

That's sort cool...so I don't know squat, but assume there is a little "comments box" or some such you can fill in for shows?

Sounds like something I would do...

I presume you mean the iTunes thing? Everytime I get a new Dead show I do many things to the metadata (the information about the show) so to standardize the information. For instance I take the time to properly rename all songs that are misspelled, or otherwise not appropriately punctuated. I think the official name of Playin' In The Band is just that, not Playing in the Band, or Playing In the band, or whatever. So I rename all songs.

I also use the Disc column in iTunes for my Set #. So most shows have 3 sets, and the first batch of songs I set the Disc field to 1, the second batch of songs I set to 2 (for the second set), and for encores I just make that the third (3) set.

I also standardize the location of the concert, it's always in this format:

YYYY-MM-DD - Venue, City, State

Sometimes I have to add other stuff like University, so I do

YYYY-MM-DD - Venue (University), City, State

I also add to the album name either (SBD) or (AUD) depending on the source. So I have

1973-10-30 - Keil Auditorium, St. Louis, MO (SBD)

I rate all shows because I can never remember which ones are really good or which ones are average. I also use the comment field in iTunes to make any comments about the show that I might like to read in the future.

It's a process but I'm pretty fast with it now.

That's impressive. Thanks for the detailed feedback.

I have only a couple of hundred to keep track of, ie, 68-71, so it's not to difficult at that moment, but this is good to keep in mind if I ever expand.
